For the first time ever, you can watch the Marine Corps Marathon from the observation deck at CEB Tower in Rosslyn. Cheer on your loved ones or just enjoy the spectacle from high in the sky.

On October 28, the streets of D.C. and Arlington will be teeming with thousands of runners and spectators at the 43rd Annual Marine Corps Marathon. Friends and family members will be vying for spots to see the action, heading to five different spectator venues along the course. Avoid the crowded streets and make your way to CEB Tower in Rosslyn for a VIP viewing of the entire race!

Enjoy incredible views of the city and savor a brunch with cocktails. If you want a simple in-and-out pass for the day of the race, those will be available on a general admission basis. Additional discounts will be offered for members of the military.
